For the first time in a documentary film, the remarkable story of British composer George Butterworth (1885 – 1916), his music, life and times. Drawing on newly uncovered archival treasures, including the letters and memoirs of those who knew him best, ALL MY LIFE’S BURIED HERE is the compelling account of a pioneering British composer, musician, folk song collector and dancer cut down in his prime on the battlefeld of the Somme. George Butterworth made several visits to Horsham in the years before 1914 to collect folk songs from local singers and the film shines a light on his activities in this area for the first time.
